12 June 2017


I’ve sent the Sonata (all its several five PDFs) to three pianists here in Boston, and known to me.  So . . . let us see if we can arrange a reading this summer.

I need to prepare an informatively-cued clarinet part for the second movement;  otherwise, I think the clarinet part layout fairly straightforward . . . so that the Lux Nova edition should not languish.

What now, you ask?  In the way of taking a breather before (yes! at last!) plunging back into White Nights, I do have a few light items to see to:

1. We have one more Sunday (25 June) for the handbell choir to ring at church, so I need to see to a piece for rehearsal after the service this Sunday.

2. There is talk of working with a string quartet for the second Triad concert this coming season (that is, talk of keeping with that idea, even though we had an ad hoc quartet for two pieces this last concert).  So I will adapt O Gracious Light for accompaniment by piano and SQ.

3. And the handbell choir director of an Episcopal parish in Cambridge reached out yesterday with the possibility of commissioning me to write a piece for them.
